Hi all,

I've become sort of an armchair fan of Tufte and have built a small
collection of my favorite information graphic samples (including
Royksopp's video "Remind Me").

How much of developing snazzy info graphics requires training in art?
What self-training curriculum could I implement to move from being a
boring Visio Diagrammer to burgeoning Information Graphic Developer?
